<p>Running from the 20th-22nd of May the international, three-day Pint of Science festival will see thousands of scientists simultaneously bringing their research out of the lab to share with the public in over 300 cities across 24 countries. Founded seven years ago by two UK researchers, the festival brings a unique line up of talks, demonstrations and live experiments to the nation’s favourite locals. New for 2019 is the festival theme “What Next?” – we’ll be posing this critical question to researchers working across a huge range of scientific disciplines.</p>
A fascinating and diverse day of Physics talks and workshops, focused on the topic of time.
A fun, exciting day is planned for anyone with an interest in science. The talks are aimed at over 12s, but some of the workshops are suitable for a younger audience, so feel free to bring the younger ones to the talks as well.
Pioneering new research by the University of Exeter could pave the way for miniaturised optical circuits and increased internet speeds, by helping accelerate the ‘graphene revolution’.
Physicists from the University of Exeter in collaboration with the ICFO Institute in Barcelona have used a ground-breaking new technique to trap light at the surface of the wonder material graphene using only pulses of laser light.
Students from a number of schools in the Exeter area were treated to an extremely rare talk when Dr. Helen Sharman OBE, the first Briton in space, delivered a fascinating lecture at the city’s Belmont Chapel on Tuesday 3 November.
Exeter School was delighted to welcome Dr Natalie Garrett to Exeter School on 28 September to give two talks on her work as a Biophotonics researcher at the University of Exeter.
The lecture was sponsored by the Institute of Physics and Dr Garrett presented her work to a group of around 90 Sixth Form scientists in the morning and all Middle Fifth pupils, as well as around 100 pupils from other local schools, in the afternoon.
